There is something to be said for minimal design. But intentional minimalism is a science and an art and still seems to remain stylish. The pages just feel… lacking.
One thing to note on a few of the other pages is: the contact page… you need to put a form on it, or make your email a mailto. If you are going to bother putting your email on the page for spambots to find it, you might as well not make it frustrating and non-clickable.
The blog page also has tons of misspellings on it, which really hurts your credibility. Easy fixed by a spell-checker plugin (assuming you’re using a platform that supports it) or just use firefox which has built in spell-checking.
I would add more padding to the right black block.
There are too many different fonts for this empt-like design
I would try to work on a better styling for your logo, maybe trying to add more style to the J, L and S, this should make a difference and give your website a more personal atmosphere
